Fishing & Boating in the Northwoods

Road Trips, Excursions & Getaways

My frequent road trips and vacations to the Northwoods take me through some interesting places in Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

When I was growing up, I couldn’t wait to get to where we were going. Now, I enjoy taking my time ( a sign of getting older?) and, more often than not, make the trip in two days or more instead of one. I always try to get off the main highway and do some exploring.

It is said that time is precious. It is not nearly so precious as the hundreds of places that are just waiting for you to visit. As my favorite Uncle Tommy used to constantly tell us: “Take some time to look around you. It’s amazing what you will see!”

Fishing since the age of eight.  Seriously writing since the age of 16. Chef and foodie from the age of 22 years… and counting. So much to learn and so little time. I have enjoyed every minute of it all.  Whether on the water (where I like it best), in the kitchen, or at the keyboard, churning out content, I feel like I have found my place.  I am sharing it with you in the hope that some of what I love to do will rub off on you. I hope to see you On the Lake!
